I'm not sure if the books I've read since completing my Cybils commitment last week are benefiting from not being middle grade science fiction and fantasy novels, but they are excellent regardless. One of them might even win the Newbery (Medal or Honor). So might one of our shortlisted books, for that matter. And then there's When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead (Wendy Lamb Books, 2009).
Which is to say I haven't forgotten you, Newbery.
